Yes (that is, no: I did not restart it; if I try to use xrandr during X init or even just to plug in the second monitor, the behaviour of X and then fvwm is weird and random). You got the problem right :) I restarted fvwm, and the focusing "bug" is fixed, thanks a lot! However, there is another thing: "smart placement" does *not* want to place windows on my second monitor (though other programs like firefox use the second monitor freely). This is not a big deal, of course, but it's a sign that not all parts of fvwm understand the new size even after restart. Thanks a lot!
